Look at Yourself! ┇Short Reminder┇Muiz Bukhary┇Pertubuhan Al Khaadem
Then you need concentration to apply the art of contemplation, right? You need concentration to apply the art of contemplation now on what are you to contemplate on? What are the sources?
Say for example, look around you look at the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala there's so much around us to contemplate, such as the creation of Allah Subhana Allah, what are the lies that we're just saying the noble the ayah and the soul I read at the beginning of Allah yonder una ebk for Julio, but do you all not see or look at the camel and how it was created? What in a sama ek for roofie and don't you all look at the heavens and see how it has been raised? Well, LG Valley kayfun oc but don't you all see the mountains and how they have been placed so firmly while out of the cave so they do not look at the earth how it has been spread so wisely. Allah subhanho wa Taala What are
these questions electronical questions to open our minds to make us contemplate to make us ponder who will see roofing or the front door okay fair, but Allah subhana wa sallam documentaries and Oberon O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, tell them go travel the earth and look at how Allah subhanho wa Taala began the creation. We have been commanded by Allah subhanho wa Taala, to ponder, to contemplate and to reflect. So look at the creation around you. Look at yourself. You are a living manifestation of the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala of the greatness of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala look at yourself, look at your faculties. Look at your eyes, the tongue, say
for example, see I'm speaking English you all understand there are so many languages prevalent on the face of this earth, so many languages and at the
blinking of an eye I can switch a language I mean the languages that I know to speak you can learn a second Lama Lovato da V and I'm talking because switch the language the ones in the audience who can understand Arabic will be able to understand me, me Oh Tora, Tora janta, who I can talk a little bit of odo
so you know we can converse we switch languages but don't you think it's a great blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala there are so many things happening while we switch languages there are so many signals going through the brain deciphering those languages the proper words nowadays this storage of words our mind is playing with all the words taking the correct words and then everything is coming out. Look at all of that happening. Look at our eyes, we look at things with so much of clarity attempt we take it for granted you ask the cameraman in the crowd, they will tell you that the experts with cameras I mean to take a good picture but you need you need a proper focus. Like
say for example if I want to take the brother in hand over here I would have to focus on Mashallah, he'll come crisp and clean but the rest I can if I want I can blur them. But say with in a very quick gesture if I were to take the camera behind and try to take somebody at the back without allowing the camera to focus even though we have modern day technology where we have laser autofocus and whatnot which happens in a few seconds. But still I need to give the camera a little time to focus if not I will get a very blurred picture. But then look at our eyes here I am looking at the brother is crisp and clean Mashallah, if I will look at the ankle at the back, he's also crisp and
clean, it's happening seamlessly the correct amount of light is going through and focusing all of that is happening the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala Do you see anybody doing any focusing like this? You know, when they want to focus at someone at the back tapping touching an eye and focus on masovia and doing the manual setting the ISO, the aperture? I mean, I just need Oh, just I don't know about this stuff. But I'm just saying Yeah. Do you see anybody doing that? the correct amount of light? Oh, it's blinding. I can't see. So I need to drop the ISO perhaps I need to increase the aperture. Nobody knows that. It happens automatically. You go into a dark environment. Your eyes
automatically adjust and take the correct amount of light. You're going to go well lit environment. Again, your your eyes adjust. You need to contemplate you need to ponder. And that's when because you see coming back to concentration. We tend to just look over all these things. We just tend to skim over all of these things. If you sit down and contemplate and ponder. That's when we realize
there's so many things around us. We need to savor and relish life this life that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us like say for example, even drinking water, even drinking water when I say what I'm feeling thirsty. So when we drink water, what we do, we just you know pour it Okay, maybe if water is not a good example, say a cup of tea or a cup of coffee, we tend to read a book or perhaps you're scrolling on newsfeed
reading the paper and we're just sipping our coffee, but you know what, put the paper aside. Close your laptop, keep your mobile phone aside and save and relish the dream
You're drinking, you start to value the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You start to enjoy it, you start enjoying life, relish your relationships, relish the relationship that you enjoy. relish the fact that you have a loving family waiting for you back at home. At times we take all these things for granted. We tend to and we tend to only focus like the camera on all the negative things and we think oh my god, life is like so difficult.
